Let’s rewind back to the late 70s when the slogan ‘reduce, reuse, recycle’ was estimated to have been introduced into society…
Where efforts to reduce waste were in great favour due to the mass realisation of the aftermath of World War 2, spiralling from the open access and freedom of buying which consequently led to an increase in consumer goods, single use items and unsustainable disposal.
In the 2000s, we were presented with the concept of the ‘Three R’s’ in leaflets and public articles, with a large push over television ad space; flashforward to 2020 and the green triangle that we all recognise to represent these pillars has been a valuable addition to the emoji keyboard for years ♻️
But how can we relate this to technology and devices? What does this mean for your business? And how could it influence your buying and renewals?
Below are some key points to consider from Andy Wright, our Commercial Director here at XMA.
- How do you redeploy your assets and get a longer life out of them?
- If there are assets that are no longer suitable for your business, what would you do with them?
- Would you look at purchasing pre-owned goods?
Recycling old technology into new areas is a trend that we hope will mushroom throughout the IT industry, from an economic and environmental perspective.
Take a look at this video from FDE TV and see what is currently being done by XMA and HPE to see the wheels spinning.
As a tech-savvy society, we are consuming more at a faster rate, whether this is due to innovation, relying on new styles to stay current and on trend, the desire for collection, or anything else in between… Saying this, we are also more aware of the asset lifecycle and how older assets can be refreshed and transformed, being fully fit for purpose for brand new projects.
Our Platinum Partnership with HPE is truly valued, progressive and productive and as mentioned in the video, we are ‘showing how it really should be done’, so all aboard, and welcome to simple and sustainable procurement.
